Most new gigs are given a little boost in a limited time when launched.

Keep on having good rating and reviews. Off-Fiverr promotion like social network and your blog. Quite cliched...

Fiverr is passive dealing with copyright infringement.

Hi, and welcome to Fiverr.



You are correct that Fiverr should remove gigs that feature stolen work, but as you’ve seen there is a constant stream of new gigs to try and keep up with. Fiverr also uses a lot of automation (they need to hire more admins to watch over the site), so many things don’t get shut down that should - and there are also occasions where things gets flagged and removed automatically when they shouldn’t. As unfair as it is, they are also known to intentionally let ‘bad’ gigs/sellers stay active until they are forced by a third party to remove them. If they’re making good commissions, they let things slide as long as possible.



The only thing you can really do to try and get more orders is to promote yourself and your gigs in places other than Fiverr. You have to drive your OWN traffic directly to your OWN gigs. Promote your gigs offline as well, use flyers and business cards etc… If you rely on Fiverr it will be very difficult to get orders - there is simply too much competition in your category.

Thanks willpower_hk , itsyourthing for your opinions and guidance.I think it’s better to promote my gigs in various medias rather than rely on fiverr as you said.
